PostSubject: Golf balls that "light up or Blink"   Wed Feb 10, 2010 6:46 am

Hello everyone,

I saw a few people in our home course using this special golf ball, that blinks or light up when you hit...

Is this available in Singapore?
What are they called? and how much are they?

Lastly, where are they sold?

I've got a sleeve of them. Was given as a gift.

They're called 'Tracer' or something like that. I remember it was twilight and quite dark when i was on the last hole of NSRCC, and decided to swop to this 'blinking' ball. Of course, i was the only one who played my 2nd shot.. my flightmates all lost their usual Pro V1s.. ahhahaa.... Really cool stuff.

I think you can get them from Far East Shopping Centre. About $20+ for 3.

Yeah, they remain lit for about 3 -4 mins, so you can take your time to walk towards it...
I'd recommend waiting for it to stop blinking before you address your next shot.. can be rather distracting.

Can watch them 'blink n sink' slowly as they go beneath the water or watch them blink just out-of-reach from retrieval in a deep ravine or very thick underbrush also!

we got a couple of them too. It is quite cute. you need certain amount of force to activate the electronic inside.

But it is an expensive ball to play actually...

When the first ProV* was announced, and not yet put into the mass market, I heard some people managed to get hold of some . Would you believe they were going at USD$30 each in Ebay ??? Its true. Take my words for it. Just imagine you tee off on the first box and it went OB .... Crying or Very sad

Thank you very much Tracer for the info.
Can you recommend which golf store sells this @ Far East?
any brand in particular?
How does it compare with those regular golf balls that doesn't blink?
